Regardsing sand... although I've been growing aquatic plants for
a very long time, I really don't think I've learned much over the
years except how to recognize a plant so far gone you probably can't
get it to come back when you get it home.

If you look at 


This is a 40L that was set up with nails ans steel wool
covered with an inch of manure, then 3" of unwashed sand then 2 " of washed
sand. Normal water changes and I never had to fertilize it in the year it
was running... I had to tear it down when we remodeled and will set it up again
this winter. 

The laceplant leaves were about 2-3' long and 4-6" wide.

The recipe given above has been in fairly widespread use around Ontario
for 30 years I know of.
